Tonight's lineup: Caps at Sharks

Michal Neuvirth will be back between the pipes tonight for the Caps, who have not won in San Jose since 1993 (when goalie coach Arturs Irbe was the Sharks' netminder.) Evgeni Nabokov, meantime, will get the nod for San Jose, which is tied for first place in the Western Conference.

The matchup pits two of hockey's highest scoring teammates -- Joe Thornton and Dany Heatley (98 points) and Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom (94). It also marks the debut of Jason Chimera.

The rest of the Caps' lineup should look like this:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Morrison-Knuble
Chimera-Backstrom-Semin
Fleischmann-Laich-Fehr
Laing-Steckel-Bradley

Defense
Schultz-Green
Morrisonn-Poti
Erskine-Alzner

Goalies
Neuvirth
Theodore

I'll have a postgame wrap later.
